National Specialty Centres, including Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Changi General Hospital (CGH), Sengkang General Hospital (SKH), KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH), Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC), and SingHealth Polyclinics (SHP). The Centre forms a unique platform for the collaborative work
of a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals.
The Centre aims to meet the needs of our patients throughout the
diabetes continuum of care; from prediabetes to late-stage diabetes
with complications. We are dedicated to achieve the best outcomes for
our patients by combining clinical expertise with the latest advances in
treatment, research and education.
Our team of primary care physicians and specialists are experienced in the
assessment and management of diabetes and the associated complications.
They are supported by a strong and dedicated team of diabetes nurse
educators, dietitians, pharmacists, podiatrists, medical social workers and
psychologists. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that people with diabetes
get comprehensive medical care, patient education, and aggressive prevention
and management of complications.
